The upper Taylor River begins at 11,800 feet in the Elk Mountains, flowing sedately through Taylor Park, creating Taylor Reservoir. Below the dam, the Taylor becomes a rough and tumble river, joining with several creeks before coming together with the East River to form the Gunnison River.
Spring Creek is a great place to learn how to fly fish! This pretty little creek has easy road access from beginning to end. The trout are plentiful, the banks are clear, and the water is perfect for a beginning fly caster. The upper meadows of spring creek are a fine setting for a relaxing day of fishing and picnicking for the whole family.
